Students will never again walk into the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s building where a gunman killed 17 people on Wednesday, legislators announced.

Florida legislators said Thursday they will help the school tear down building 12 and replace the site with a memorial to honor the victims and their families.

‘This building has to come down,’ said Republican Sen. Bill Galvano of Florida to the Miami Herald on Friday after visiting the school.

The three story freshman building on the high school’s campus was where gunman Nikolas Cruz began his blood bath Wednesday.

The district is proposing a memorial on the site where building 12 stands now. The renovation is estimated to cost between $25 million and $30 million.

Officials are working on plans for the memorial and said they will reveal them to the public by the end of the weekend.

‘Parents and students have resoundingly told me they can’t go back into that building regardless of what we do,’ Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie told the Sun Sentinel.

‘The other piece I heard is that that building will be used as evidence in any type of legal process that goes forward, so we won’t be able to access the building for a while anyway.’
